ROSE (Reach Out, Stay Strong, Essentials for mothers of newborns)

ROSE is a class taught in prenatal clinics that gives pregnant women the skills and information that they need to lower their risk of postpartum depression.Through four 90-minute sessions, the program teaches pregnant women to recognize the signs of depression and how to reduce stress by seeking social support, finding a network of friends and family members, and knowing where to go for help. The ROSES Study (ROSE Sustainment Study) is currently partnering with 90 clinics providing prenatal services to low-income women in all 50 states. The ROSES study will help determine what outside supports are needed to help prenatal clinics implement and sustain ROSE, reducing negative consequences for mother and child.
